What is a Repeat Prescription?
A partnership between the patient and the prescriber that allows the prescriber to authorise a prescription so it can be repeatedly issued at agreed intervals, without the patient having to consult the prescriber at each issue.
How to request a Repeat Prescription
AT LEAST 48 HOURS NOTICE IS REQUIRED FOR A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION TO BE PROCESSED AND SENT TO YOUR NOMINATED PHARMACY.
You can request your medication in the following ways:
- Via online services (request are reception if you are not already signed up for this) https://www.kensingtonpark.co.uk/prescriptions/online-prescriptions/
- In person in reception (please use the ‘right hand side of the prescription)
- Sending the request in the post with a stamped address envelope (please use the ‘right hand side of the prescription)
NOTE: YOU CAN NOT SUBMIT REQUESTS ON THE TELEPHONE
Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
The practice issues all prescriptions (both acute & repeat) via EPS which means that your prescription goes directly to the pharmacy of your choice. This is more beneficial for our patients as it will save unnecessary visits to the surgery. You can simply pick up your medication from your nominated pharmacy.
You still need to allow 48 working hours from the time of your request.
Unfortunately certain medications cannot be done through EPS due to safety reasons. These medications include:
- Controlled drugs like (Tramadol, Morphine, Oramorph, Fentanyl, etc)
- Private prescriptions
